Fees and pricing

Edward Jones offers a consultative, individualized approach to addressing your financial needs, including education savings, retirement planning and insurance.

 An Edward Jones advisor consults two clients on their financial options.

Personalized solutions and costs

Investing isn't a one-size-fits-all endeavor. So, if you’re wondering, “How much does a financial advisor cost?” or, “What is the fee for a financial advisor?” there isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer. What you want to do with your money is unique to you, and the solutions that are right for you are just as unique.

With us you decide:

  • How hands-on you want to be
  • The different types of investments you wish to own
  • How much monitoring and communication you prefer
  • How much money you want to invest

It's also important that you understand the costs and fees of our services and how you will pay for services within each solution, including whether you will pay when a trade is placed (commissions) or pay a percentage of your assets annually (fee-based).  

Your decisions help determine which account type is best for you. 

Before you make any decisions about your path forward, we want to understand what’s important to you – and that doesn’t cost you anything. After that, we work together to determine what solutions match your specific needs, discuss the costs of each of those solutions, and reevaluate regularly to help make sure your choices still align with your goals.

Step 1: Schedule a complimentary meeting with an Edward Jones financial advisor to discuss your goals. 

Step 2: Discuss with your Edward Jones financial advisor which account types and investments are in your best interest.

Step 3: Agree on next steps.
